22 May 2015 Maximum discrimination approach for classification of nearly identical signatures
Author Affiliations +
A method of classifying signatures that are very nearly identical is described. In this instance, slight template errors can result in poor classification performance even in a high signal-to-noise ratio environment. To ameliorate the uncertainty in the signature templates a new approach is proposed. It involves processing only the maximum discrimination frequency bands. A computer simulation using actual chemical signatures illustrates the approach and demonstrates its improved performance over traditional techniques.
